1. Her Royal Highness Prince William, Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Stratheam, Baroness Carrickfergus was discharged from the hospital after spending three days there due to severe morning sickness. I'm glad she's feeling better. Some are saying she's so sick because it's twins. Cool! Next time one of you ladies is pregnant and puking your guts out, demand the "royal treatment."

In recipe news, Mr. BMJ decided to flex his culinary muscles Tuesday night. His creation was Mexican meatloaf. I was totally on board, despite the fact that I had Mexican for lunch on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday (I ate mealoaf leftovers yesterday for lunch too). You can NEVER have too much Mexican food! We paired it with Spanish rice and "Uno Mas" salad. Yum!
1 lb ground meat
1 cup ground Fritos
2 medium shallots, diced
1 pack taco seasoning
salt and pepper
Ortega taco sauce
Mix everything thoroughly except for taco sauce. Put in meatloaf pan and top with taco sauce. Back for 1 hr 15 minutes at 375. Top with more taco sauce and fritos.
*If I made this again, I would add a little crushed garlic, some cumin, and minced jalepeno pepper!
Oldie But Goodie Wine
We paired our Mexican meal with Old Faithful (Whispering Angel Rose), but we cracked open a bottle of Fat Bastard Chardonnay last night. I forgot how great that wine is! It's smooth, slightly buttery, and has a bit of a spicy note that gives it the perfect "bite." We paired it with homemade chicken philly subs and truffle fries. Heaven!
